2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Fat Boy S Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price

Take the Fat Boy to the gym to beef him up and you get the 2017 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy S. Powered by the High Output Twin Cam 110B motor, the Fat Boy S is ready to ripple urban pavement.

Don’t get the idea of taking on anyone in the canyons, though, as the Fat Boy S has less cornering clearance than the standard Fat Boy. That’s fine, as the bike comes in just two shades of black—and chrome banished from the machine—making it perfect for midnight runs around town.

Cruise control is standard, as is a hydraulically actuated clutch and ABS. Feel free to flex your muscles with the Fat Boy S.
